While staying in Grand Teton National Park over the Labor Day holiday, we wanted to check out the Saturday Farmer's Market in Jackson, Wyoming, so we combined that with several other shopping stops to make a day of it.
On the wonderful paved bike path from Gros Ventre junction in the park to Jackson, we passed this museum. It was on the other side of the road, but we could see some of their huge outdoor sculptures outside as we rode by.
Snuggled into the steep hillside, the museum looks like a fort.
Here's one of the amazing sculptures; a herd of bison. These were actually the only bison we saw in the area, a real change since they were a daily occurrence in Theodore Roosevelt and Yellowstone National Parks.
Arriving at the visitor's center, we dropped off our recycling. They recycle everything here!
Our next stop was the downtown farmer's market, and it was busy!
First stop was this booth for some delicious sourdough bread for dinner.
Next, a booth selling homemade pies caught our eye. I wanted to try the huckleberry, the local favorite, but it was $10 more than any other flavor! So, we settled for sour cherry. NOT that I'm complaining -- we both adore cherry pie, and this one was delicious!
After loading up our purchases, we took the same bike lanes and path that we'd taken on our laundromat ride a few days prior to the Jackson Whole Grocer for a couple of essentials.
On the way back into downtown, we were feeling a bit peckish so stopped at Moo's Gourmet Ice Cream. Make sure to note the Boston Terrier in the photo! This cutie pie got a nice ice cream treat from his owners. Don't tell Paisley!
Since the farmer's market huckleberry pie was too pricey, I settled for a scoop of Moo's Wild Huckleberry ice cream. Barry sampled the Rum Raisin and Buzz Bomb (Extreme Espresso w/Chocolate). Their ice creams are organic and absolutely delicious and earned a five-dot Tripadvisor review from me.
Last but certainly not least, we stopped back into The Bunnery for a few more treats to take back with us. Gotta have goodies to keep our energy up for the long bike rides, right?!

We're a long-married, early-retired couple who are currently traveling as nomads with no fixed home base. After years of living in North Carolina (Emily's home state), we spent 18 months living oceanfront on Ambergris Caye, Belize, a year road-tripping the US in a Honda CR-V, a year in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, and are now roaming North America in our 32' motorhome, Pearl, following warm weather whenever possible.
